BIG AUDIO DYNAMITE - First Gig London 1985


After being sacked by The Clash, over differences about the musical direction the band should follow Mick Jones took inspiration from the emerging New York Hip-Hop sounds, and along with fellow cultural/musical/artistical explorers Don Letts, Leo Williams, Greg Roberts and Dan Donovan set up Big Audio Dynamite, who became a groundbreaking musical force; mixing Hip Hop beats, Rap’d lyrics and samples from films with Rock’n’Roll guitars. The groups first album released in 1985 This Is Big Audio Dynamite is a classic, another desert island disc of mine. It sounds as fresh today as it did 25 years ago. This recording is from their debut gig in London @ The Kentish Town Forum on 28th Nov 1985. Enjoy!

Ha just dug this one out and cleaned it up. I will post another show now. They were a great band that first album is as you say a classic and original sounding it took a lot of bravery to move away from the punk sound and come up with something new, something Mick always tried to do with The Clash. I often wonder how far The Clash would've gone musically without him. Top post mate thanks.
